(Golden Perfection) Very sweet, pale green flesh is just marvelous. Yellow and loosely netted, a very beautiful melon. This was one of our top melons in our 2003 trials, truly incredible! It was listed in Vilmorin's book The Vegetable Garden in 1885, but is very rare now. An all-time favorite and a dream for market growers.

What are the pros? Should slip

What are the cons? none

Review:

We grew 15 melon types in 5 gallon containers last summer. I got excited when this one started turning a mustardy-yellow and picked it, but I was supposed to let it slip. We tried it anyway and the center was deliciously sweet, so I think if it had been allowed to finish maturing, it would have been excellent! It took 27 days from the time it sprouted for it to flower, and I picked it at 87 days from sprouting, so that gives you a ballpark idea of how long of a growing season it needs. For those who might want to start early indoors, at 29 days from sprouting, the vine measured 29 inches long. Our prematurely picked melon weighed in at 1 pound, 15 ounces.

Review:

I was so excited about this melon. It germinated fine, and I thought all was well. Until I didn't have any melons by the frost! It began blooming and then, nothing. Don't know what happened, I watered and weeded and everything else. Wonder what went wrong?

Review:

We loved this melon this year! It was the star of our garden. We had lots of them. They are so beautiful and delicious. Some of them were big as volleyballs. We will definately grow these again--they are our new favorite melon!

Review:

We'll be growing these again. They are still going strong (Oct. 6!!!) As other reviewers mentioned, you need to leave them on the vine much longer than the other melons. They need to turn a yellow/green/orange golden color. The flesh inside is green with a tinge of orange in the center by the seeds when ripe. Smell is very delicate, it's not an overwhelming cantaloup or musky smell, very fine and sweet. These melons would be good for farmers markets as well as home gardens, they are very easy to grow and will take a lot more neglect than other melons.

Review:

We tried the Boule de ore golden honey due this year and had great results. For me they were ready when they turned bright yellow. Out of 10 melons we grew on one bush, only one split and went bad. Sweetest melons I'v ever grown, and they are heirloom, yahoo.
